The website is ARCADESPAREPARTS.COM

If anyone in NYC area orders let me know maybe we can order together to save on shipping. My order priced out is much much cheaper than lizardlick.

This was originally the art i was going to use on my HRAP but since i used non clear buttons i had these buttons laying around forever and finally had something to put them in thanks to walmart. also, my first time doing lamilabel and i must say I hate it. Gonna probably have to replace it with a vinyl print in the future

I also got the wrong mounting plate on my ls-32 so I'll have to wait to complete it


Absolutely beautiful. I was just playing the Vampire collection on my Dreamcast the other day. I forgot how much I love Morrigan as a character...nice work!

So...The MK stick showed up on Joystiq yesterday, with Happ parts, apparently.

I'm not at all familiar with that button layout. I'm guessing that any arcades I went to (although by the time MK3 hit I was not really going to arcades anymore) used a street fighter cabinet and just put Mortal Kombat in there. Keeping in mind that I grew up in the Appleton area of Wisconsin. Not really the hotbed of the arcade scene.

My wife works with vinyl daily, do you think that would really work? Maybe I can get her to print my art out.

Does anyone know of a good way to test that your buttons are working properly after you do the mod? Someone should make an XBL Indie game to do that...


You test your buttons on PC. Go to property of the controller and it has a whole animated GUI of all your buttons and directional inputs. They flash when you push them.

Very cool design, though I wish they'd lose the block button. That never added anything to the gameplay.

Agreed ill probably get it on the PS3 especially with the pending release of the MK Trilogy in HD.

Tried using the Daigo way of holding the TE and for ryu i did a lot better, but my dudley suffered greatly. Maybe i just need to get used to it, but all i wanted to do was switch back to normal.

So i finally ordered all my buttons, new circle gate,and new ball top with artwork coming in from gamesongrafix or formally known as Mame Marquee.

The one thing i hate about taking apart this stick is all the epoxy on the screws. Its a pain in the ass to deal with and unless you strip the epoxy first. So anyone doing this the first time, try to get rid of the epoxy first before you try to unscrew it. I almost stripped a screw trying to screw it with the epoxy still on. Otherwise, this is a very very easy mod.

if anyone is going to get rid of the art work. I suggest you use a spudger(thanks to Chris Ainsworth aka driph for the tip). You can get one off ebay for a buck free ship and it really gets under the label. Goo Gone will be your second best friend when getting rid of the adhesive that the label leaves behind.

now its just time to wait for my shipment to come in from Lizard Lick and GamesonGrafix. should be done by next week or when ever the shipment comes in.

Full Seimitsu (LS-56-01 and PS-15s)...

Shout out to www.jap-sai.com - Home for helping me locate one. Shout outs to NRX for the heads up on them as well!

With THIS STICK. I only need 4 more PS1 generation arcade sticks to have a complete collection of boxed ones (to my knowledge at least)... :3

Bit of a weird question - is there a way to disable the top panel on a MadCatz SE in a way that you'd have to open the stick case to re-enable it? I'm setting it up at an event and want to prevent people from getting to the 360 dashboard. Is there a pin header I can unplug?

you can just use the lock switch. Flip that switch to lock and the Xbox button is locked to go back to the dashboard.

EDIT to not double post:
i blogged about it but here my finished product. Again, i messed up my mame marquee cut so i went to lami label but i did get 80lb cardstock and explain what i was going to do in the blog lol.

anyway for a full rundown check out my latest blog entry. thanks and tell me what you guys think. The only thing is...next time i will move the holes a little down more so it doesnt cover kaguya's mouth.

But that doesn't stop people from just flipping the switch back to re-enable it. I need a way to semi-permanently disable it for four days straight. This is to stop people from getting into the dashboard (I'm also going to physically block the eject/power buttons on the console).

Are you going to be in front of this thing during the event? If not you, is someone else? If people are monitoring the station, I doubt anything will go wrong. Plus, why would anyone want to go to the dash, anyway?

No, I doubt I or anyone else I know will be able to stand in front of it the whole 80+ hours straight it'll be running, and people have ALWAYS gone into the dash and messed with the other stuff on the console, even if said stuff is impossible to play on an arcade stick. I lost my Shadow Complex save because of this one year. I wouldn't be looking into this if it weren't already a problem requiring a solution.

At least I don't have to worry about this on the PS3 since I happen to have a PC USB gamepad that maps 100% correct, just without a Home button.

So, back to the simple question - can I simply unplug the wires leading to the top panel from the main PCB? That's all I'm interested in discussing.

If I were you, I'd still move all my saves onto USB or something... I actually keep my profile and all my saves on a Memory Unit to avoid that sort of catastrophe.

...you wouldn't happen to be talking about MAGFest, would you? =)

Anyway, I just happened to have my just-modded SE/TvC stick with me, so I was able to take a look and try this out. I learned something today! This will likely look a bit different from yours... my parts are different and I didn't drill the hole for the headset jack yet, so the headset board is not in place:

You want to disconnect the one connector in the bottom-right corner. Try to GENTLY scrape off as much of the glue as possible first. Scrape up, not down...this way you won't slip and scratch the PCB by mistake. I used my nails and an unfolded paper clip to do it. After you've removed enough of it, gently wiggle out the connector from the top. Don't pull too hard, and make sure you're pulling on the connector and not the socket. Sorry if I'm giving totally unnecessary advice, but better to be safe than sorry...the price of SEs is shooting upwards lately, as I'm pretty sure they're no longer being made.

When I plugged in the stick after disconnecting that one plug, the P1 light lit up, and the lever and all buttons (including Start and Back) were all active, but the Guide button no longer functioned. I tested this on my computer and not an actual 360...I don't see why it would be any different, but you may want to try it on the actual console before the event.

Just tried this myself, works like a charm, thanks!

And I have an LS-32 in mine too :3

So I'm sure this has been talked about to death but... my Best Buy has the Tekken 6 PS3 bundle for $38. Worth it? I doubt I'll be putting some heavy duty use into it. I got a 360 SF4 SE last year and it's only got a few hours on it. Then again, i have a lot more PS3 fighting games... but still. Also, does it work with backwards compatibility?

Made by Hori for the PlayStation title EHRGEIZ: GOD BLESS THE RING, Squaresoft. Using the same case as the command stick PS.

With the EHRGEIZ Arcade Stick... I now have 245(I think) in my collection. Someone reassure me that I'm sane. Please?
